Twitter #Music now live
have today rolled out their much-rumoured Twitter #Music facility to UK users, albeit only to Apple App Store and web users.
Here's a snippet of what they have to say:
"(Twitter Music) uses Twitter activity, including Tweets and engagement, to detect and surface the most popular tracks and emerging artists. It also brings artists’ music-related Twitter activity front and centre: go to their profiles to see which music artists they follow and listen to songs by those artists.
The songs on Twitter #music currently come from three sources: iTunes, Spotify or Rdio. By default, you will hear previews from iTunes when exploring music in the app. Subscribers to Rdio and Spotify can log in to their accounts to hear full tracks that are available in those respective catalogues."
You can download Twitter #music from the App Store now. The web version is rolling out this afternoon: music.twitter.com
